Workday view

Mowbray Park ferry terminal crowned by Story Bridge, Brisbane, Australia

Uber trips invariably deposit me in the city. As parking is restricted and in high demand I nip over the Story Bridge to take refuge in Mowbray Park, East Brisbane; to await the next call to action.

Winter night

Usually six stacked shadows precede my path on the final leg of my journey home.

Last night, the path was dimly lit. Filtered light finding it’s way through surrounding vegetation on the boundary of the adjacent Fort Street High School.

The apex of the bridge provided two spotlights; nowhere near enough to light the serpentine structure.

The crossing over the Parramatta Road is usually well illuminated from six floodlights mounted high up on the side of the orange Kennards Self Storage building.

Is this a sign?

Park Hyatt, Sydney

Approaching the Park Hyatt Hotel from the Overseas Passenger Terminal in Circular Quay, Sydney. 

The hotel follows the line of the foreshore in a graceful curve. I especially like the way it appears to nestle in front of the Harbour Bridge. 

Casino 2


The above is a view of Barangaroo from Ballaarat Park, this view of the Harbour Bridge will disappear once Sydney’s second casino rises up from behind the white hoarding. 

Crown Sydney is a six-star casino and hotel resort that has been approved for construction in Barangaroo, Sydney, Australia. When it opens in 2020, it will be the second legal casino in Sydney (the other being The Star). However, unlike The Star, Crown Sydney’s casino will only operate with VIP membership restrictions. With 75 floors (including mezzanines) and a height of 271.3 m (890 ft), it will become the city’s tallest habitable building, surpassing Chifley Tower.

Twilight

  

I took this picture from a pedestrian bridge over the Paramatta Road connecting Petersham and Leichhardt. I’m still pondering the simile of twilight as a transition from day to night. 

Sparkling lunch

On Saturday we were treated to lunch for my birthday at the Park Hyatt Hotel adjacent to the Sydney Harbour Bridge. A triple sparkling event as the group gazed at the harbour sipping champagne.
